Frost is a member of the Lin Kuei clan that turned on Sub-Zero and a supporting antagonist in the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games.
She first appeared as a supporting antagonist in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, a minor antagonist in Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon and Mortal Kombat X a minor character in the Mortal Kombat X comic series, a supporting antagonist in Mortal Kombat 11 and a minor antagonist in its story mode DLC, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.
She is voiced by Chrissie Rios in the original timeline, and Sara Cravens in the alternate timeline.
After Sub-Zero became the Grand Master of the Lin Kuei clan, he organized a tournament to recruit powerful warriors. The winner was Frost, showing exceptional skills; Frost then becomes the apprentice of Sub-Zero. After a time of hard and arduous training, Frost increases her combat ability, while her arrogance also increased.
During the events of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, when Raiden asked Sub-Zero for help to end the Mortal Alliance, she went with Sub-Zero to the Outside World. After this, she froze Sub-Zero, leaving him motionless for a few seconds so she could steal the Dragon Medallion that he carried on his chest. Without possessing the strength and discipline necessary to control the power of the medallion, her own freezing power ended up burying her in an ice coffin. Sub-Zero felt very sorry for her because she had taken a lot of appreciation and affection, but he knew that he should give her a dignified burial, so he took her to some ancient ruins where he discovered that they both were descendants of the criomantes, a warrior culture able to master the ice.
He also found an armor of his ancestors and chose to leave it there. Some time later, Sub-Zero returns to the Lin Kuei temple, only to find that Frost has returned, accidentally resurrected by Taven, in his search for his mother's gift. Frost could only remember Sub-Zero, and she murdered all of the Lin Kuei that she found in his path. Believing that Taven was Sub-Zero, Frost fought him. The last blow Taven did to Frost, allowed her to regain his sanity. However, Frost is arrested again by Sub-Zero, who freezes and contains her in the temple until she regains her sanity.
Frost appears in the Mortal Kombat X prequel comic, as a fighter in a fight club with death fights, holding a record of 21 fights won, undefeated, with 19 perfect victories and having killed all her opponents. When she has to face Cassie Cage, at first Frost takes the lead by brutally beating Cassie, but she reacts using unpredictable movements inherited from her father, leaving Frost unconscious. The stadium manager forces Cassie to kill Frost, but at that time two members of the Black Dragon clan, Jarek and Tasia, break in. Cassie and Jacqui Briggs, who had accompanied her to the place, rescue Frost and flee. Both notice the heaviness and low temperature of Frost without realizing that she was a cryomant, since Frost had not exhibited her powers to both. Frost is removed on a stretcher by paramedics.
In Mortal Kombat X, Frost appears in the Lin Kuei temple along with Sub-Zero, who helps the Special Forces in their training, at the request of Johnny Cage. Frost is impatient and arrogant, refuses to help the Special Forces and hates that Sub-Zero helps them. She later attempts to kill Scorpion when Sub-Zero invites him to the Lin Kuei temple, leading the already suspicious Scorpion to believe that Sub-Zero plotted to kill him until Sub-Zero froze Frost when she attempted to kill Scorpion from behind.
Later on, during the events of Mortal Kombat 11, on a Sub-Zero and Scorpion mission at the Cyber Lin Kuei factory, guarded by Sektor to manufacture cyborgs in Kronika's service, Frost appears surprisingly, revealing that she has become a cyborg, metallic body but retaining its face and hair. Frost is defeated by Sub-Zero and Scorpion, and left at the factory, unconscious. She then reappears in Kharon's ship, which transports the Earth Warriors to the fortress of Kronika's time to face her and her armies. Frost tackles the ship along with an army of cyber ninjas, but is defeated by Raiden, who is forced to burn her circuits and kill her so that the army of cyber ninjas will shut down, since they were all connected to Frost through a network.
In the original timeline, Frost was initially loyal to Sub-Zero and the Lin-Kuei. Sadly, she possessed mental instability and was arrogant about her potential. Between these two factors, she was led to eventually try and oust Sub-Zero as grandmaster, only for her scheme to fail and her to be banished. After her banishment, her mental state deteriorated, especially once she discovered Sub-Zero had made peace with the Lin Kuei's mortal enemy Scorpion. After being resurrected by accident by Taven, Frost's insanity reached new heights, seeing everyone around her as her former grandmaster, though this could have been a side effect of being resurrected, as after Taven defeated her, she realized he was not Sub-Zero.
Frost is a strong fighter with potential but lacks judgment: she cannot see the wisdom of peace. She is stubborn, confident, power hungry and feisty. Her dedication to fighting and learning is overshadowed by her arrogance and hostility towards anyone she perceives to be greater than her. Headstrong and driven, her abilities are eclipsed only by her overconfidence.
Sub-Zero lets her stay in the clan and at his side hoping that one day she will attain perspective and enlightenment through the experience of battle. Frost is fearless, bold, independent. What made Frost so tough was her hard life as an orphan in a slum where she had to fend for herself and to utilize brute force to get she desires (or to take back what is taken from her).
While Frost is strong, she has too much pride. If Frost chose to give up when she was in living the slums, and if it wasn't for her determination and persistence, she would have never been able to get to where she is now. While her drive helped her to become a skilled fighter, Sub-Zero knows that Frost could become greater if she wasn't so quick to rage. This proves that while Frost is a skilled warrior, she hinders her abilities because of her selfish nature.
Powers and Abilities
While her ice powers are not as formidable as Sub-Zero's, Frost's cryomancy abilities are considerably strong. Instead of freezing opponents directly, she freezes the area in front of them so as to increase her range and odds of hitting them. Frost can also slide into her opponents, teleport away from them to appear behind them, delivering an uppercut, and use her powers to create a pair of ice daggers to fight with.
As a cyborg, she gains a new master control brainwash program as her new master and predecessor Sektor, in case if Sektor dies, the master control is still active through her.
